I’m a UK psychotherapist and researcher working exclusively with clients struggling with overeating issues. I’m part of a small team of dedicated, hard-working therapists and counsellors at a busy eating disorders charity, and I also work in private practice.
After decades of overeating and bingeing, failing diets, weight loss and weight gain, I normalised my eating and now enjoy a peaceful relationship with food.
My aim is to help you do the same.
I use the term “emotion-driven overeating” to encompass the overeating spectrum that includes emotional eating, compulsive eating and binge eating disorder. I wanted something that attempts to convey the urge to eat only people with these kinds of issues can truly understand.
I publish 4 posts a month, usually on a Sunday or Monday. You’ll notice each month has a theme – for example, self-care, identity or body image – so the posts connect to each other.

I originally started this blog as a resource for clients but I’m really happy what I write seems to strike a chord with people all over the world. I’m incredibly grateful to everyone who reads, likes and comments on my posts – your stories touch me more than you will ever know. Thank you.
